KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Christchurch

  • A city that is uniquely blossoming with resurgence following devastating earthquakes in 2011, Christchurch is bustling with energy and is going through a process of identity redevelopment. Renting a car will not only give you the best scope to explore the combination of heritage buildings, reconstructions, and modern skylines that line the Christchurch streets, it will also open up your access to the Waimakariri River and Southern Alps. The freedom to go where you want and when you want cannot be undervalued, especially considering the world class skiing location, Mt. Hutt, is only a 90-minute drive from town.
  • Christchurch International Airport is located 12 km (7 miles) northwest of the downtown district. After viewing the best available deals on the market with KAYAK, reserve your rental car and make arrival on the South Island a seamless transition. Major rental companies such as Avis, Budget, Europcar, and Hertz have counters located within the International Arrivals Hall.
  • For a start, you’ll have to adjust to driving on the left hand side of the road. If you haven’t done this before, don’t fret -- your brain has a way of adjusting naturally following a few confusing minutes at the start. If you are planning a trip to the Southern Alps, be sure to check the local weather reports and road conditions before you leave.
  • Traffic in Christchurch is a cakewalk compared to some major cities across the world. You can expect increased congestion between 4:30 pm and 6 pm; however, traffic continues to flow and you will be able to reach anywhere in the city with relative ease. During the peak snowfall period (from June to August) you can expect some delays on Highway 73 as people flock towards Mt. Hutt.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Christchurch for ₹ 2,421 or less
  • Book your rental car in Christchurch at least 7 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Full-size rental cars in Christchurch are around 58% cheaper than other car types, on average

Christchurch car rental experiences: the best tips from KAYAK users

Insights shared by verified travellers who rented a car in Christchurch 
RickMar 2024
Take the insurance extra offered. I hate a crack in our windscreen from a rock hitting it on the roads. No problem after dropping off
Verified travelerJan 2024
Take back roads to get used to driving on other side of car if that’s applicable to you. Otherwise, Christchurch was great to drive in !
GregoryFeb 2024
Gas is pricey(2.80 NZD/Liter). Not as difficult as expected driving on the left. Roads are narrow and you have a large number if 1 lane bridges in the rural areas of the South Island

FAQs about renting a car in Christchurch

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Christchurch?

    If you would like a small economical car to minimize emissions and fuel consumption, consider getting a Toyota Yaris or Volkswagen Polo. These cars are also ideally suited to inner-city driving, their smaller size helping you navigate tight parking spots.

    Unless otherwise indicated, the speed limit of urban traffic areas is 50 km/h (31 mph). Once outside urban areas and on highways or rural roads, the maximum speed is 100km/h (62 mph). Keep a careful eye on your speedometer as to avoid fines, since speed cameras operate in Christchurch and can add an unwanted expense and issue to your travel.

  • Where are the best places to park in Christchurch?

    Parking spots in the downtown district of Christchurch are plentiful and make life easy for those with a car. Christchurch City Council operates eight parking lots across the city, two of which (on Lichfield St. and Center of Contemporary Art) have free parking for the first hour.

Cons:

At pickup was informed Invercargil roads were all closed (which was untrue), so I may not be able to drop the car off at scheduled point, but if I made any changes to the dropoff location I would be charged extra by Budget. Very unhelpful, and very unfair to charge customers extra due to weather events outside of our control.

Pros:

We did not like anything but the online booking process. The rest was painful.

Cons:

Our flight came in late and we missed the pick up window. I emailed Budget to let them know, but this message didn't get through to the rental location. When we picked up our car, the woman was not very friendly and said we missed our window and it was given away. She said they had no cars left for us. She did not give us other options of where to rent or what to do in this situation. She did not show sympathy either. Do not rent from Budget. We went with Europcar in the end. They were nice and had a great car for us (and their counter was right next to the Budget one).

7.6 Good

Feb 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was decent, ran fine and fulfilled our needs. It was nothing special or out of the ordinary, just a basic Toyota Corolla, but it did the job.

Cons:

We could've used some instructions on pickup and return - in a foreign country we didn't know if processes would all be the same. A little disappointed that the car was a Corolla when we booked "Camry or similar" since the Camry really is a significantly nicer car.

Pros:

I left my cell phone in the vehicle and didn't notice until I was on the airplane. I called the Christchurch Budget office and explained the situation. Toni McLean, the Budget agent there, secured my phone and sent me instructions on how to get it back. She then processed the FedEx transaction and I received my phone without issue. This was awesome! Thanks Toni

I had to go back in 3 times b4 leaving with the rental. It would have been really easy for them to give me all information 1st time.

I did not want a battery car the technology is not supported by infrastructure outside the city area I was travelling long distances to achieve what I wanted to do in the 5 days There was NO charging facility in Akaroa so could not tour to the areas I wanted to visit There was no instruction given on the app required to login to a charger once I found one that was comparable with the fitting on the car Charging took up to 3.5 hrs as the power supply in the rural areas could not support more than a 25 kw charger Only one charger at some locations so if someone was there before you you had to wait until they finished so lost more time and had to amend my travel plan again as overall I estimate I spent 20 plus hours either charging car or waiting in line for a charger I will never ever use one of these stupid electric vehicles again as you have no flexibility to travel where you want to how you want to when you want to The stupid vehicle ruined my holiday and left me very angry with your company and European over the whole fiasco especially given that Europcar help line was run from The Phillipines by people with poor English skills and absolutely no idea of the conditions in New Zealand The whole concept of using these vehicles for tourist who are freedom touting in a country with limited support infrastructure is stupid On one Charing station once I finally got it to work the estimated charging time was 3.4 hours to 80 percent it was a bloody joke

The car was what we expected for what it was. We had an early flight, so when dropping off at the chch office it wasn’t open at 6am (fair enough) but instead of offering a taxi number on the building to get to the airport maybe 1 or 2 designated spots at the airport could be a nice option. 1800-0900, otherwise drop at the office.

When we arrived to collect our booked car, I was told the booking had been cancelled & there was no car available. No communication to tell me the booking had been cancelled. The staff member was very unhelpful just saying that it wasn’t her problem because we booked through a 3rd party (Kayak). Luckily a super friendly person at another rental car company was able to help us out with a car. It did cost us $100 in taxis to get around between the airport, Hertz, then the new rental car company! All this because the car rental cancellation had not been communicated to me! Very frustrating. NEVER USING HERTZ OR KAYAK EVER AGAIN!!!

Pros:

This car was the perfect size to travel around with. It was large enough for our luggage but small enough that it was easy to park.

Cons:

Returning the car in Queens town was a little confusing because finding parking is extremely difficult. We were told they had a designated parking space but not until after we went to return the car. It isn't signed and just looks like the access for an alley.

Pros:

My car was mechanically sound, the reservation, purchase process was easy.

Cons:

A poor value, and Hertz was difficult and inflexible. My Holden Captiva was a below-average car. Hertz charged $90 USD daily. Hertz also refused to accept my car at Queenstown vs. Christchurch when travel plans changed. Will try another agency next time.

I didn' get the car I requested and paid for, Toyota Aqua Hybrid but the smaller Toyota Yaris Hybrid,which was not suitable for touring for the two week hire. Lacked comfort and road holding, I couldn't maintain road speed often letting others pass, breaking on steep decent was poor and with low gear engaged engine was hemoraging at 30kph.(vehicle only has drive and low) On a previous rental,in Cairns, a similar thing happened when I was given a smaller inferior vehicle. Not likely to return.

The car was very old with stains on the interior and a strange smell. The drop-off location provided was completely inaccurate, as was the included phone number which risked further delay in getting to my flight. On drop-off, they found a very tiny little nick in the windshield and insisted I stay longer to fill out a long form. They have a policy where they take out an additional $2000 from the credit card at the time of the rental so you can't easily challenge their charges later from out of the country, which feels predatory.

Pros:

Nothing. Services were not rendered.

Cons:

This rental was the worst customer service experience of my life. DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT BOOK WITH ECONOMY OR SCOTTIES. If I could give zero stars, I would. Kayak should drop this company immediately. While booking online, be warned, Economy serves as an umbrella company to many smaller companies in New Zealand. If you are unfortunate enough to have your reservation served by Scotties, be prepared for a terrible experience. In my case, after a flight arrival time change from 1000 to 1400, I called Scotties for a pickup (the only way to get picked up as they are not in the terminal and do not run a constant shuttle). After 2 calls and a 40 minute wait, the shuttle arrived and I was informed by the driver that my booking had been canceled (allegedly NZ law requires a company to only hold a reservation for 2 hours - other companies hold your car for 24 hrs), they had no additional cars available, they were sorry but they could not help me. There was no communication from the company that my reservation had been canceled despite them having access to my email, phone number, and the two phone calls I’d made upon arrival at the airport requesting to be picked up. Still in need of a car, I went online and booked a vehicle with Economy through Travelocity. My credit card was charged and I received a confirmation email at which point saw the company providing the car the was once again Scotties. I called again, now with a valid reservation in their required 2 hour window, and was told to wait 10-15 minutes, the shuttle was on the way. Again the shuttle arrived (35 minutes after the phone call) and again the shuttle driver refused to take me to their office stating that there had been a miscommunication and they did not have a car for me. I called the company back, (which was now the fourth long distance phone call for that day) they apologized for the inconvenience but offered no assistance or compensation for my time or troubles. I strongly recommend you never rent from “Economy” or Scotties. Their non-existent customer service is not worth the discounted prices for their vehicles. It’s a wonder a company like this stays in business. It’s quite obvious it’s terribly mismanaged and only makes me wonder the quality of the vehicles they rent to travelers. I most certainly will never book with them again and encourage others to do the same. There are several other options available that I highly recommend you explore. I ended up booking with Firefly, a partner company with Hertz and located in the terminal. Only slightly more expensive then Scotties, the car was ready as soon as I finished paying, the customer service was excellent, and there was no shuttle or long distance phone call required for pickup I emailed Scotties with a formal complaint and was answered with a shameful sarcastic response from Scott himself. They do not care the slightest bit about customer service. Avoid like the plage. Go elsewhere even if prices are higher.
